SLYTECH SHIELD CARBON adds aerospace technology to the high performance of the SLYTECH SHIELD shin guard material. Carbon fiber technology, combined with years of technical experience, has allowed the creation of a high performance ski racing shin guard that offers considerable racing advantages whereby impact with gates does not result in energy transfer to the athlete. The new production process ensures much greater durability and making it possible to obtain an extraordinarily durable yet lightweight shell.

Fitting of Shin GuardsPut on your ski boots and measure from the top of the knee cap down to where you desire the shin guard to end. Personal preference dictates the bottom point. Some racers wish to have the shin end just above the boot top as they feel the shin guard can catch on the buckles when flexing forward. Others prefer to have the shin cover the top two buckles for protection from gate hits.
Multi-DN Impact Technology
Increases the stiffness of the shell which maximizes the speed of passage over the race pole drastically, reducing the friction during impact between athlete and pole.
Carbon fiber is an aerospace material that is used when performance is the driver. It has the highest strength-to-weight ratio and the highest rigidity, so there is absolutely no impact perception when hitting a gate. Athletes acquire a greater skiing safety and confidence, thus improving technique and performance.
Shell lining is made with Ariaprene, which is a revolutionary alternate to synthetic rubber. It is non-toxic, easily decomposable, readily recyclable and actually outperforms the less eco-freindly alternatives. Offers optimal comfort and superior grip even at extremely low temperatures.
